Anthony Oakshett is a versatile professional painter equally at home composing portraits and very large scale canvases. His commissions have taken him to many parts of Britain and overseas.
He attended courses at Bournemouth and Poole College of Art before being awarded an exhibition in English at Christ's College, Cambridge where he studied Architecture and History of Art.
His first commissions came while he was still at Cambridge, notably a series of portrait drawings of honorary fellows of Magdalene College. Moving to London in the early eighties he continued to be in constant demand, working from a studio in Tite Street, Chelsea, until 2007. In 2005 he painted the Queen for the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries.
More recently he was appointed Lead Artist by the House of Lords for a commission to paint five large canvases, each three meters by five, depicting the defeat of the Spanish Armada in 1588.
